This YouTube video from Shaun Academy goes through steps on how to start a security guard company.
Are Security Guards Needed?
Although technology has certainly helped enhance the security of businesses, there’s still a great need for security guards. Products like digital cameras and fingerprint scanners are passive forms of protection.
Ohe on the other hand, a live security guard can go into immediate action when alerted.
How to Start
The first step to starting a security guard company is to learn about the industry. Look at other organizations and see how they’ve succeeded. The fact that you may become a competitor doesn’t mean their owners aren’t willing to help you out.
Next, educate yourself. Security guards come in different forms. In other words, some simply patrol warehouses and storage facilities while others, like bank guards, are granted firearm licenses. You must know what each entails and the needs to move forward.
You also need to consider factors related to starting a business. This includes licensing, the form your company takes, and any insurance needs.
